7/16/90 is also like the Alpine Valley version.

I might be biased because I'm a huge Scarlet fan and 7/16/90 was my first show, but this differs from other versions of this pairing in that during the transition they are literally playing both tunes simultaneously. One by one (quickly, perhaps too quickly), they make their way from Sugar to Scarlet. I was hoping to hear something similar in other shows (Alpine, etc) but didn't.

The downside of this version is that a verse of Scarlet is skipped, and it doesn't go in to Fire, which was a shame.
